“I’m Sad For Them:” Dawn Robinson Slams Lifetime’s “En Vogue Christmas” Movie Before It Even Airs
En Vogue hasn’t been En Vogue since around 1997 when Dawn Richardson left the group, but somehow drama still seems to follow the original quartet members. Dawn currently has her panties in a bunch over Lifetime’s upcoming movie, “En Vogue Christmas,” which will star two of the group’s original ladies, Terry Ellis and Cindy Herron. According to a press release, this is the premise of the story:
Over the years, the funky divas of En Vogue have gone their separate ways. Now they are asked to perform a benefit concert to save the club that made them stars. They put aside their hesitations to reunite for the special night, but first, they must overcome their challenging history with Marty (David Alan Grier), their former manager and the man responsible for breaking them up. In the spirit of the holidays, the ladies find forgiveness and come together for an epic En Vogue Christmas concert to keep the club from closing its doors forever.
So why is Dawn mad? Well, according to TMZ, she’s threatening to sue if Lifetime airs the movie without her character , which happens to be the current plan, as Rhona Bennett, who joined En Vogue in 2003, is the only other member of the group who’ll be in the flick. Unfortunately for Dawn, she gave up all rights to En Vogue when she left the group in the ’90s, which is why boycotting, which she plans to do, is about her only option. She told TMZ:
“I have no interest in watching it. It looks horrible. I’m sad for them. After seeing the Aaliyah biopic, I’m extremely worried that this is going to be a trainwreck.”
Dawn’s probably not the only one worried. What do you think about her threatening to sue though?
